All reproduction requests must be submitted through this form. Some archival materials are extremely fragile. To ensure the preservation and conservation of the collections, certain items will not be reproduced if the procedure may damage the material. Reproductions of manuscript, print or oversized materials will be done in a manner most consistent with the preservation of those materials or within in-house technical capability. Items may be photocopied or scanned (typically 300 dpi TIFF, JPEG). Reproduction of photographs will be done by digitization only. Print reproductions of photographs are not available. Standard resolution for files is 300 dpi (unless otherwise requested). Research quality files will typically be in JPG format. Publication quality files will be TIFF format. We are unable to provide technical or graphical editing assistance.
Modest fees may be charged to partially cover labor costs and related costs associated with providing items. Patrons associated with Xavier University (faculty, staff, students, and alumni) are generally not charged. Digital images of photographs: $5/image; CD-R: $2; Postage: $3 minimum; Photocopies/PDF printed pages: 20 cents/printed page. Pricing is for reproduction only and does not include any fees that may be required for permission to publish or licensing of the reproductions. When applicable, an invoice will accompany the order. Payment should be by check payable to Xavier University and mailed to:
Xavier University Library
3800 Victory Parkway
Cincinnati, OH 45207-5211
Users of the collections are expected to abide by all copyright laws. Responsibility for observance of copyright rests with the applicant and not with Xavier University archives or special.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproductions. One of these special conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be used for any purpose other than private study or any fair use as defined in Section 107 of the U. S. Copyright Law. If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of fair use, that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
